Hi, I am a multi-award winning barbering educator that travels the world to help barbers and stylists build empires without the blood, sweat and tears.

I help people shortcut years and years of figuring it out! 

Helping people achieve their goals is seriously my favourite thing to do and always has been. This is the reason I founded the Foss Academy. 

In my career, I've been fortunate to be a creative director for some of the most prestigious barbering emporiums within the UK such as Harrods Barbershop, Gentlemen's Tonic and Men's Salon at Selfridges. Oh and let's not forget The Refinery in Mayfair where I'm currently based. 

But, I think it all started back when I was a session stylist, directing and overseeing global creative teams for shows including fashion weeks in Paris, Moscow, New York, and London. It occurred to me that maybe somebody else would like to do this too! Somebody else would like to be at the top of their game, having a large celebrity clientele and travelling the world. Hey, even earning lots of money sharing their knowledge or just cutting hair.  

This is how the Foss Academy was born. Out of a passion for sharing and helping others achieve their goals.  

It's taken me 20 years to figure stuff out!!! But I can assure you, it will not take you that long to earn considerable amount of money doing what you love. All you have to do is follow the elite strategies outlined in my courses. What I offer is a shortcut to achieving great success like I have in my career. 

The thing is guys, I love innovation, so in 2011 I created the first barbering education app in the UK. It was a great success, but it had it's limitations. I couldn't create a community.  You see, I was travelling all over the world teaching, but I realised that I could help way more people if I created an online academy.

So, guess what? I did! I decided to launch an online academy to help even more people achieve their goals.  And there is one thing I do know - that this will provide serious value to what you do!  Make sure you get on the waiting list for my premium course that shows you how to turn your career into a money making machine.
